My response:

  This just makes me wonder if anyone knows who to trust and who not to
  and if anyone thinks to give credit where credit is due outside of the

  This is the second semi-cruel message I've seen directed towards Alex.
  It seems no-one knows whom he his.  For everyone's information, Alex
  is co-author of the building.doc introduction, part of VieMUD, admin of
  this mailing list, maintainer and builder of worlds, maintainer and
  author of the snippets page, part of CAW (I think), and much more.  I
  seriously doubt he has any malicous intent towards anyone.

  In fact, I don't even know what makes people think they have the right
  to publically flame or cast doubt upon anyone, especially Alex, Jeremy,
  or any other of the numerous contributors that deserve respect.  What
  have you done for us all that is so great?  Try to protect us from
  people that are helping us?

  Not that we should bow down to them and worship their every step, but
  we certainly should owe them respect -- and you, Mr Barnett, certainly
  owe Alex an apology.
